What is mobile mapping?

The technologies enabling 3D mobile mapping and better understanding

In recent years 3D Mobile Mapping has become one of the most important geospatial technologies available, and it is set to change the way environments are measured, visualised, analysed and catalogued.

Through the combination of advanced imagery, measurement capture tools and a variety of mobile transportation platforms, 3D Mobile Mapping enables users to visualise, record, measure and understand environments, wherever they may be.

Detailed visualisation of environments that have previously been very difficult to measure and analyse is now possible, including underground and underwater structures. 3D Mobile Mapping is quick, accurate and more comprehensive than ever before, and is delivering significant benefits to users and asset owners.

Inaccessible areas can be mapped effectively and quickly using the mobile platforms. Where environments would have taken weeks to survey, they now only take days, improving efficiency and productivity.

The technology is already being used to survey major road and rail projects, for mapping urban environments, understanding underground and underwater structures, and to improve safety in power infrastructure and plants around the world.
